Crowns for Teeth

A natural tooth has two sections. The section above the gum is a called a clinical crown and the section the below the gum is called a root.

When a clinical crown becomes damaged or discoloured a new casing can be made to fit over the remaining tooth – This is called a Crown.

A crown is usually made of Zirconia and Porcelain. The structural base is Zirconia and the front is Porcelain baked to the Zirconia.

To do a crown requires a dental injection, followed by drilling, an impression, and a temporary crown is made from plastic and glued on with a soft temporary glue.

The impression is given to a Ceramist in Brisbane and a crown is fabricated in about two weeks.

The crown is then cemented at the final appointment.

All of our Crowns are custom made right here in Brisbane, Australia by experienced dental Ceramists (Technicians)
